KEMP–Multiple neighboring fire departments responded to four grass fires and one structure fire in the Kemp area Dec. 27, 2020.
Four separate grass fires, along with strong, gusty winds Sunday morning made for a long day for multiple departments. The fires were in the Lively area about 10 minutes west of Kemp near County Road 4065.
The structure fire caused severe damage to a home in the Kings Creek Country Club development in Kemp.
“We ask our community please do not burn anything,” the Kemp Fire Department said in a Facebook post. “Our vegetation is dead from the frost and just a small spark can start a large fire with potentially catastrophic damage.”
Scurry, Kaufman, Mabank, Gun Barrel City and Kemp fire departments provided mutual aid to the fires Sunday.
